Finally, Great Britain had a fighter that outclassed every weapon its foe could throw at it: the Supermarine Spitfire Mk XIV. Even when menacing rockets and jets attempted to scorch the land, heroic pilots strapped into their Griffon-powered Spits to topple them. The new E-flite® Spitfire Mk XIV 1.2m has been developed to deliver great warbird performance and agility in addition to the distinctive elegance only possible with a Spitfire.
The E-flite® Spitfire Mk XIV1.2m is a full-house park flyer that combines an unmistakable warbird with an impressive features list. An authentic trim scheme, big five-blade propeller, functional four-panel flaps and electric retracts are just a few of finely tuned details. Construction with Z-Foam™ material keeps the overall weight low and airframe durability high for enhanced performance in all aspects. Industry-leading DSMX® 2.4GHz control and specially tuned AS3X® technology deliver flight performance similar to that of an expertly set up model many times its size. Built-in SAFE® Select technology is a programming-free option you can activate during the bind process. With SAFE Select turned on you get a super-stable model with the security of envelope protection and self-leveling flight which can practically eliminate first-flight jitters. There is also a program-free option to assign SAFE Select to a transmitter switch so that you can take advantage of the system the instant you need a hand. Whether you’re an intermediate pilot or scale aficionado, the formidable elegance of WWII British air superiority is yours to unleash.
SAFE® Select Technology
What if you’re just a little intimidated by a brand new model? The evolutionary SAFE® Select technology in this Spitfire can offer an extra level of protection so you can perform the first flight with confidence. No complex transmitter programming is required. Just follow a simple bind process to make the SAFE Select system active. With it on, bank and pitch limitations keep you from over-controlling and automatic self-leveling makes recovery from risky or confusing attitudes as simple as releasing the sticks. In fact, with the aileron, elevator and rudder sticks in the neutral position, the model will automatically hold a heading with a straight and level attitude.
You can even expand the advantage SAFE Select technology offers by assigning it to a switch. No transmitter programming is required and you’ll be able to turn the system on and off with the flip of a switch. For example, turn SAFE select on for takeoffs that seem laser-straight. Turn it off in flight for unrestricted aerobatic performance and turn it back on when a buddy wants to try out your cool warbird. Turn SAFE Select on for landing. As you drop the flaps, SAFE Select reduces your work load by compensating for pitch changes automatically, regardless of throttle position. Plus it will help keep you on heading and wings level during the final approach. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, SAFE Select can make your flights more fun.
When the normal bind process is followed, the SAFE Select system is disabled leaving specially tuned AS3X® technology in place to deliver a pure, unrestricted flight experience.
The installed main landing gear feature reliable electric retraction with covers over the steel struts, scale wheels and outer gear doors that enhance the authentic appearance.
Light wing loading, plus operational flaps, gives this warbird a significantly greater flight envelope with the ability to takeoff in shorter distances and land more slowly.
15-Size Brushless Power System
The power system features a 15-size outrunner with 850Kv and a 40-amp ESC, that when combined with your 2200mAh 3S 25C Li-Po battery, delivers outstanding thrust.
The specially made 10×8, 5-blade propeller, made of durable fiber-filled nylon, adds a distinctive level of authenticity and performance.
Scale Trim Scheme
The WWII color scheme features authentic trim and graphics including the characteristic goose-egg hue used on the spinner, tail band and squadron markings.
Construction with durable Z-Foam™ material offers the ability to replicate complex detail with greater accuracy while providing a lightweight airframe that’s easy to maintain.
